Truck Accidents Caused by Improper Maintenance

Commercial trucks are large, complex vehicles that require rigorous inspection to meet the safety standards established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). According to law, tractor-trailers must be thoroughly inspected at every stop to check for faulty components, brake failure, and other liabilities that could lead to truck accidents.

Additionally, a truck’s cargo load should be checked to ensure it is carefully balanced and secured. Loads that exceed a trailer’s weight limit or are not properly balanced can cause a truck to tip or rollover when making a turn, increasing the risk of fatal truck accidents.

Despite the FMCSA’s regulations, many commercial trucks remain on the road without regular maintenance. These trucks pose a constant threat to motorists and truck drivers alike. Even a single defective component can lead to a deadly truck accident.
